SPECIAL SESSION FOR ASSISTANT PROFESSORS

Friday, September 13th, 3:30-5:00pm
[Point Grey]

Over the last 40 years research in finance has undergone a gradual transformation, as the community of finance researchers became much larger. The goal of this talk is to document some trends in publications and citations, and the impact they had on the tenure process. The presentation will follow the structure of an empirical talk and will be entirely data-driven. After presenting a lot of descriptive statistics, Dr. Panageas will present results of regressions from a data set of tenure outcomes  across universities on several predictor variables and discuss trends of how these predictors changed over the years. The ultimate goal is to give attendees a wealth of information and data to allow them to make more informed career decisions. While the talk is primarily intended for untenured assistant professors, all members of the profession (from PhD students to tenured professors) are welcome and encouraged to attend.
